It should be noted that these sites go up and down like a yoyo, so whilst they may be down one day, it's normally guaranteed they'll be back online within 2-3 days or so (it's rare that they stay down).

Well, just incase, I have rated some of them Malicious, but to not cause confusion or false positives, I have sent a mail to the MyWOT staff and told them that some sites that I have rated Malicious is in Offline.

For the good though, I hope they stay offline for the safety of everyone.
